Captain Jim's is a beautiful three story home decorated in a nautical style with three bedrooms and a loft and a family room with futons with spectacular views from all three levels.

Enjoy your time here watching the boating activity at the marina or just looking at the beautiful water, mountain and island views from inside or one of the many decks outside. Be sure to watch for the deer and bunnies that come to visit in the backyard or wandering down the street!

Just minutes away, you can shop in historic downtown Anacortes or take a whale watching tour from Cap Sante Marina. You could also hop the ferry for a day trip to Friday Harbor.

The Captain's House overlooks Skyline Marina, Rosario Straights, Burrows Bay & Washington Park. Spectacular views of the mountains, islands and marina activity.

There are many things to do from this location:

-Walk to Tugboat Park and Beach.

-Drive 1 minute to Washington Park and enjoy 220 acres looking over Rosario Straights, with a beach, lookout points and picnic tables for walkers or drivers. There is a boat launch with covered picnic tables & play area for kids and adults.

- Take a guided kayaking tour from Skyline Marina.

-Take the 'Ice Cream Cruise' to Friday Harbor aboard the Paraclete Charter Boat.

-Go whale Watching out of Cap Sante Marina only a 5 minute drive into town.

-Pack a Picnic lunch and drive a short distance to Mount Erie Lookout and enjoy the spectacular scenery.

-Drive less than 2 minutes to the San Juan Ferry and

park for $10.00and walk aboard for a gorgeous cruise through the San Juan Islands to Friday Harbor for the day. There are lots of shops and restaurants.

_Hop on the local bus just up from the Ferry and get a narrated history of the island. It takes you to the Pelindaba Lavender Farm, Lime Point & Lighthouse for a hike and a picnic. There are picnic tables with great views- and if you time it just right you will see the whales in their feeding ground. From there the bus continues to Roche Harbor where there are restaurants and vendor booths and historical sites to see. A great trip!

-You'll probably need a week to do all the fun activities that are available in the Anacortes area. Unlike other islands, you are not stuck on this island, but can go easily to any of them!

The house was perfect for our girls weekend and birthdays. The views are spectacular and the photos don't really reflect how wonderful the house is. Thanks for allowing others to stay😊

Comfortable home in nice neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Captain Jim's. We were three couples and found the place perfect for all of us. The kitchen is well stocked for preparing meals and eating in.

Living areas have comfortable furniture which is great for lounging and visiting. Beautiful views with easy drive to downtown Anacortes.

Beautiful home!

  • 4 of 5

This a beautiful home with amazing views ! Elisabeth was great with responding quickly and adjusting to our needs. We booked her place at the last minute.

The home is great, windows everywhere with amazing water views. But, this is an older home and in need of a few updates. The carpet in the bedrooms & bathroom is extremely old and in need of being replaced.

My girlfriends and I really enjoyed our stay and would stay again. The listing doesn’t list everything. The kitchen is stocked well. Pretty much everything you need to cook. Shampoo, soaps, paper towels, washing detergent, etc. all at the house.

We really enjoyed our stay. It was great to sit, sip wine and look out at our amazing view. The deer walking around the neighborhood was entertaining. Thank you Elisabeth for sharing your place with us.

lake stevens, wa

older house but some of the best views you could ever find

  • 4 of 5

lots of room in this spacious 3 bedroom house. extra loft with futon bed for sleeping or viewing or sitting on the deck. binoculars furnished to look at the sound and nearby islands and boats and such. Well stocked kitchen - only negative here is that there was one old sponge for use with dishes and counters - it had been used a lot by previous renters. These should be changed out with each renter. plenty of kitchen towels .

Lots of bath towels in the 2 full baths, and there is also a half bath for use. 4 TVs in the house which was awesome with full cable.

House was 70's style and some of the red carpet on the stairs and also the old carpet in the master bath need replacement.

Wonderful location in Anacortes and 15 min drive from the heart of town and also deception pass, 30 min drive from LaConner.

One drawback was the $100 cleaning fee, with us as renters expected to wash and dry all towels and clean kitchen and run dishwasher and also empty all garbages. I understand the garbage requirement but for a $100 cleaning fee, I question the towel cleaning a bit. Nice that there was a washer/dryer in the house.

I would visit this place again for sure.

Owner's Response: Carole, I'm really glad that you enjoyed your stay. I understand your concerns about sponges which is why we also provide dish clothes. We do not require you to wash and dry all towels, we only ask that you start a load of laundry if it is convenient for you. It is a huge help to the cleaning ladies when we have a back to back cleaning. We also do not ask for you to clean the kitchen. We ask for you to put the dirty dishes in the dishwasher and start it. Again, this helps in back to back cleanings. These requests are listed in the policies and procedures that you signed and initialed and returned if you would like to refer back to it. We welcome your suggestions so that we may do a better job next time. Thank you so much for staying at Captain Jim's.

SAUNA! Sunsets! Beautiful, Comfortable, Very Good Value

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay in this home for work. Lots of space to spread out and have privacy. I think this may be overlooked by many, but Captain Jim's has a great sauna accessible on the backyard deck. Being able to enjoy a sauna at the flip of a switch was something that sealed my experience here. Elisabeth was easy to work with, had no issues whatsoever. Beds were comfy. Beautiful sunsets every night! All in all a great experience.

LOCATION: Be sure you understand that this home is not located in downtown Anacortes, it is closer to the ferry terminal, west side of the island. Merts Taxi helped us get to a fro, just call ahead so you don't have to wait around for too long.
